Workshop Description:

This one-day ICS and NIMS workshop, which is sponsored by the U.S. EPA Water Security Division, will help water and wastewater utilities to better understand the Incident Command System (ICS), integrate with other first responders within an expanding ICS structure, and implement National Incident Management System (NIMS) concepts and principles that will help utilities provide mutual aid and assistance to one another.

Why is Water Sector ICS/NIMS Training being offered?

Feedback from utilities, states, EPA regions, and other stakeholders indicates that water sector-specific ICS and NIMS training remains a priority.

What is the Incident Command System (ICS)?

ICS is a standardized, on-scene, all hazard incident management concept. ICS allows its users to adopt an integrated organizational structure to match the complexities and demands of single or multiple incidents without being hindered by jurisdictional boundaries.

What is the National Incident Management System (NIMS)?

NIMS is a consistent nationwide template that enables all government and non-governmental organizations to work together during domestic incidents. NIMS requires all agencies to use ICS when responding to incidents.

Who Should Attend: Small, medium and large water and wastewater utilities, water sector trainers, state drinking water primacy agencies, state wastewater permitting agencies, and federal workers with an active role in water sector emergency response should attend this training.

Training Contact Hours (TCHs): An application has been submitted for licensed Massachusetts water and wastewater operators to receive TCHs toward their license renewal requirements for their participation in the entire workshop.
